lunch salad

I’m home from work today, working on the Jeep. It’s hot outside, and I didn’t feel like eating anything heavy, so I made a macaroni salad. It turned out really well. I figured I’d toss the recipe here, so that I don’t forget it. Maybe someone else will enjoy it too? I made it up, so there’s no one else to credit. Also, all measurements are approximate, since I didn’t measure anything.

2 cups uncooked macaroni (I used Ziti) cooked al dente, then cooled under cool water
1 medium tomato, diced
1 small onion, diced
2 cups frozen sliced okra, heated enough to not be frozen anymore
a goodly amount of chopped cilantro

Mix all of that in a decent sized bowl. I dressed it with sesame oil and salt/pepper. I would imagine that you could use any sort of dressing. Italian dressing sounded good to me, but we didn’t have any. These amounts look like they made enough to make about four light lunches.
